Credit Growth and Response to Capital Requirements

This paper makes an attempt to assess the impact of imposition of uniform capital requirement norm on flow of credit to the business sector by the most important segment of the Indian banking sector, i e, Indian public sector banks. A simple decomposition analysis of growth in assets portfolio as well as a model based analysis of credit growth for the Indian public sector banks corroborated that (a) in the post reform period, public sector banks did shift their portfolio in a way that reduce their capital requirements and (b) adoption of stricter risk management practice in respect of bank lending in the post reform period and its interplay with minimum capital requirements (regulatory pressure) have had a dampening effect on the overall credit supply.

Yield Curve Analysis for Government Securities in India

This study demonstrates the feasibility of constructing technically sound yield curves in the Indian context. It sets out a methodological basis for construction of yield curves for government securities in India and accordingly constructs yield curves for each of the months during the financial years 1996-97 and 1997-98, and a part of 1998-99. These yield curves are interpreted in the light of established theories. It is observed that these yield curves have significant policy implications.

Existence of arbitrage traders in goods market should ensure that.
